That presupposes a number of things that are still under discussion.
Using 2817 to upgrade to TLS is one of many options that has been
proposed, though whether HTTP/2.0 appears in the Upgrade header or in
ALPN is very much undecided, particularly since we are discussing
Alt-Svc, Alternate-Protocol, and other options at the same time.

Please do join the discussion if you have a preference.  I can't in
good conscience add an example at this point.
